I've narrowed my choice down to the Xone92, DJM800 or Vestax PMC08. All these mixers have unique and very different features that would all be beneficial (if only they were all rolled into one mixer
I know the 92 and 800 have great sound quality and have read the Scratchworx review of the PMC08 whom say the PMC08 has amazing Sound Quality, but cannot find any other opinions to back it up (who can compare to the 92 & 800). As for features (excluding effects as I will be getting an EFX1000 for deff, and number of channels aren't an issue for me, I only need two), what I like about the 92 and 800 is there are no L&R bal pots on channels, do not need these, they are just a hinderence, but the 92 wins on this as the 800 still has master L&R bal, the PMC08 has L&R bals on all!
The PMC08 has eq off which I think will be very useful for slamming tracks in without adjusting eq's, also don't have to worry abouts the pots sitting correctly on twelve. The PMC08 has unrivalled Crossfader cut control, 2 effect send and returns, one pre/ post with eq return, and one dry to wet, Matrix assingable were you can put one input through both channels (imagine the possibilities, eq'ing on one channel with effects while leaving the playing record as standard) and also being a battle mixer has transform switches.
Love the 92's filters, what goes for the 800 is the signal to noise ratio. The only thing thats stoping me from going with the 08 is the L&R bals. hard to weigh up the pro's con's of each. Has anybody used / heard the PMC08, I know u've heard the 800 & 92's, if anybodys heard / used all three
I know it's a long shot... any comments would be great..
